There are two campus-wide elections every year, one in the fall and the other in the spring. In each election, Marquette students have the privilege of voting for the student leaders who will represent them and their campus community. Undergraduate students also have the opportunity to run for these positions and be a voice for Marquette students. View each position to learn more.

Campus-wide voting takes place online through a Marquette Qualtrics link. Once prompted, you will be asked to log-in with your Marquette username and password. You will then be walked through an election form where you will vote for the candidates that relate to your campus community. Before you vote, we encourage you to learn about each candidate by viewing the positions listed below on this page.

Your Senior Speaker is nominated and selected to speak at Commencement on Sunday, May 17. Hear what your Senior Speaker candidates have to say in their videos.

Senior Speaker Candidates

Presidential and Executive VP

The MUSG President and Executive Vice President (EVP), elected together as a ticket, are called to serve the Marquette undergraduate community and care for the mind, body, and soul of every Marquette student. They pull from their experiences as an involved Marquette student in order to make decisions that are best for the student body. These leaders recognize students as those who make Marquette what it is, and they constantly consider the interests of all students who call Marquette home.​

When accessing the ballot, students will be asked to log into voting using their MU username. Please follow directions on the ballot. You will be directed to the appropriate ballot(s) based on your eligibility as determined by your enrollment status in CheckMarq:

  • All full time undergraduate students can vote for MUSG president and EVP._s.

  • Only full time undergraduate students enrolled in a particular college vote for that college's senator.

  • Only undergraduate students living in university-owned housing vote in the RHA election.

  • Only seniors who have applied for May 2019 graduation or who are participating in the May 2019 ceremony (and graduating in summer or fall of 2019) can vote for senior speaker finalist

Academic Senators

MUSG is made up of students. Every decision the student senate makes directly effects us, as well as the rest of the student body. It is important to us that MUSG senators work with and on behalf of students. Senators write real legislation to be passed on to administrators, meet with faculty and university officials to discuss concerns, plan forums and events focused on specific topics and gain student feedback through surveys and meeting with students.

If you’re a fan of dorm living, living near campus, or driving, you run to be a residential senator. If studies are more your forte, you’d likely want to be an academic senator. Do you caddy and live in a special house because you’re a caddy? Well, then you’re a great candidate to be the Evans Scholar senator. Of course you can’t just show up to AMU 133 and say you’re a senator, you have to run first. Elections for residential senators are in the fall, and academic senator elections are in the spring. All you have to do is pick up an elections packet, get some autographs and you’re on your way.

 

AMU 133 | Monday - Friday
